The justices, and their 36 clerks and other assorted court employees, have successfully kept that decision quiet.

It’s rare for news to stay under wraps that long in the nation’s capital. But the justices employ a “no leaks” rule that their employees adhere to strictly, despite the proliferation of camera phones and blogs.

 

One former clerk notes that turtles are a repeated motif throughout the Supreme Court’s architecture. He says the court likes its news to come slowly and deliberately, just like a turtle.
